Bio: George Leschinsky Petaluma Casa Grande. 1st team All League, 1st team All Empire. Projects as a linebacker at the next level. At the Stanford combine worked with the linebackers in drills. Currently UC Davis and Sacramento State are showing the most interest. George who currently holds a 2.9 GPA will take the SAT in June.
Size: 6'1 200
Positions: Defensive End/ Fullback
Jr. Stats: As a junior for the 11-2 Gauchos Leschinsky recorded 69 total tackles, 27 behind the line of scrimmage 14 of those were sacks. He had three games where he recorded multiple sacks.
Times and Lift Totals: At the Stanford combine this past weekend, George ran a 4.99 electronically timed 40 and did 20 reps at 185 on the bench press. He currently has a 280 pound clean, a 475 pound squat and has been hand timed in the 4.7 range throughout the spring.
five minute high light tapes along with one game tape.
Breakdown: George is a strong straight line player. His initial burst is very impressive and is his best feature as a player. On almost every play I watched he was able to get push or penetration. George also uses his hands well for a high school player. His swims and rips are quick and explosive. After his initial burst, he tends to get tall a little too soon, which allows tackles to get their hands on him. He is solid against the run and shows good strength for a 200 pound defensive end. He was able to both split and take on the double team. This is primarily due to his strong lower body.
Bottom Line: George appears to have a frame that can add good weight. He has long arms which should help him as a pass rusher at the next level. At the Stanford combine he worked with the linebackers in pass coverage drills and due to his size projects as a college linebacker. It may take some time for him to make the change from defensive end to linebacker. He is explosive and has a knack for making plays behind the line of scrimmage, but looks somewhat heavy footed in space, this is most likely due to lack of experience.
